Thursday Class

The women in the Thursday class read widely and discuss openly their spiritual questions. They think outside the box and are not afraid to engage in conversation with each other about how the spiritual life impacts everyday life.

A Spiritual Response to Our Communal Life

This Spring we will finish our sessions on Parker Palmer’s longings for our communal life. Healing the Heart of Democracy is part spiritual reflection, part history lesson, part contemporary observation. We will then read Brene’ Brown’s latest book, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone.

Schedule: Thursdays, 11:30am – 1:00pm
January 4, 11 & 25 February 8 & 22 March 8 & 22 April 12 & 26
